Brand new and high quality. The Windproof Matches are a simple but effective piece of kit for the outdoors. These strong-lighting matches will light even in heavy wind and rain. These windproof and waterproof matches are a camper's dream, and are great for your emergency survival kit, too. They are packaged in a watertight tube, with a special waterproof coating on the package, striking surface, and the matches themselves. The matches have an extra-large head so that they are sure to light - and stay lit - every time, even when wet.
Twenty waterproof matches stuffed tightly into this plastic container with a paper striker glued onto one side. Has a press-on lid that I thought would have been better waterproofing as a screw-on lid, but then the matches are waterproof. I was able to get one cotton ball under the lid to use as dry fire starter. Each package of matches comes in a small zip lock bag that will hold several ounces of cotton or dryer lint to use as dry fire starters to help burn wet wood. This was priced right and I will buy again, although don't be in a hurry to get them, it took several weeks to arrive.
